Ongoing good news from our partner with free opportunities for our community. FACT volunteers teach many of these workshops. Please support us as a donating member. friendsofalumcreek.org/personal-membership/Happy summer! Over 2,300 people have already participated in Community Backyards this year. THANK YOU! Rebates are starting to fly in, so we will be working as fast as possible with our small team to process and issue reimbursement checks. We appreciate your patience.

For convenience, we work with 5 local vendors (plus ourselves) where you can get an IMMEDIATE DISCOUNT REBATE instead of purchasing your item and waiting for a reimbursement check. This means you don't "front" the cost, and it also saves you the step of submitting it to us. These vendors may change from year to year, so check your current voucher for the most up to date information. Here are the 6 places where you can use your voucher for an immediate discount in 2024:

City Folk's Farm Shop (the only vendor that offers all 3 options!)
Fisher's Gardens
Leaves for Wildlife
Scioto Gardens* (moving in July!)
Sunny Glen Garden
Franklin Soil & Water/SWACO Compost Bin Sale

Remember, one voucher and one rebate per household per year! But you CAN participate every year. Vendors will NOT accept expired vouchers. Learn more and participate at: www.communitybackyards.org/

*Scioto Gardens: Final day of operations at current site (3351 St Rt 37 W, Delaware, OH 43015) will be Sunday, July 14, 2024. Closed from Monday, July 15 through Friday, July 26.
